My front windows don't shut

Postby Sidney'61 » Tue Jul 02, 2013 11:41 am

I've just fitted the frames and glass in the doors of my 2-door saloon, in both cases they seem to wind up fine but stop about an inch from the top, what have I done wrong?

Thanks

Check you haven't got a screws that are fouling the glass?

Another problem we had - we fitted the black window channel but found the black felt was proud at the top. You need to cut an oblong out of the felt to allow for the top of the frame (where it's screwed together top to side)

Hope this makes sense! :D

Thanks Lou,
I cut a chunk of felt off each channel and all is well :P
